Click here for the Speakeasy's details in the Taiwanease Directory

The Speakeasy is the latest venture of consummate barman Niall Clinton. It's located on Guangfu South Road, between Xinyi Road and Ren'ai Road. It's a great place to meet up with friends, they're open late, and they've got Guinness on tap! :discodance:

They're open from 8:00 pm to 2:00 am. :thumbsup:

I'll vouch for the Speakeasy. Great place for drinks with good friends. You can catch some live football matches too if you're a sporting fellow. Make sure to introduce yourself to Niall and Helen!

Just to let people know that we have a special going on bottles of Stowford Press Cider at 120nt a bottle until the end of the Rugby World Cup!

The Speakeasy will start broadcasting the games at the knockout stages with pints of Taiwan draught going for 80nt and pints of Guinness for 150nt while the games are on.

However every night at the bar, Taiwan draught beer stays at it's usual price of 100nt and Guinness at 200nt a pint(the cheapest price in the city!).

Slainte,

Niall & Helen

That was a hell of a party, barman! I've never seen the Speakeasy so packed with punters! And Bubba 2 Guns didn't throw anyone through a window, so that's good. Congratulations on your first year, and I look forward to many, many more. :thumbsup:

Happy anniversary, barman! Sorry I couldn't make it on the night, but I'm sure I'll be seeing you again sometime soon.

Keep up the excellent service. Cheers mate.
